Pediatric Liver Transplant
Our team approach ensures your child receives the best therapy during this intricate process. We’ll make sure you and your child are fully prepared throughout the transplant experience.
We see children from across Virginia and throughout the country for particularly complex cases. We’ve been performing pediatric liver transplants since 1989.
At UVA, we’ve performed more than 60 pediatric liver transplants since our program began. The Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC has performed over 1,200 pediatric liver transplants, more than any other center in the U.S., according to the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS). Survival rates at both institutions exceed national averages.
We’re partnering with Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC to provide your child the best care possible and the highest chance at a successful transplant. Together, we aim to increase access to care for transplant patients throughout the state of Virginia.
